I want you to think about a time in your career when you had just started a new job. You were excited about the company, the potential how your future would be bright. You went through Day 1 of paper work filling haze looking forward to Day 2 and getting started on that future.

If your Day 2 was like any of my Day 2’s then you were left wondering if you had made the right decision. My Day 2’s were filled with supplies but not a lot of training. There were mentions of things to do, goals, etc., but I walked away always looking for more. Looking for how the company envisioned me accomplishing those goals and crossing off those things to do.

Why do I bring this up? It’s because of what TravelHost offers to its newest business owners. We call it FYE, which stands for First Year Experience and it is a self-paced step-by-step timeline to guide these owners through the process of launching their business and building that bright future.

FYE has a lot of detail, because like a new employee, the new business owner is filled with excitement and a lot of ‘What’s next’ questions. By breaking down the process of building the business coupled with weekly conversations with the team at headquarters, these new owners will have a road map to build their success. Brainstorming, role playing, and open dialogue allow the new owner to create a plan and execute with tweaks versus starting each new day without a goal and gauge for success.


Brainstorming, Open Communication and Role Playing Lead To Success

Knowing what needs to be accomplished to ensure success is empowering. It helps to remove the fear of the unknown. It removes the question of what do I do next? Starting a business is daunting, but by working through the FYE and communicating with the team at

TravelHost headquarters the new owner can build a multi-media business that benefits travelers to the area, the local business and hotels and inevitably their own success.

Now, go back to the Day 2 we remembered earlier, and instead of having lots of supplies and no road map, you had a road map and were on your way to success. Which sounds better?

VP Sales and Marketing at TravelHost
I have spent my entire career in the multi-media industry with experience in broadcast/cable TV, Radio, Print and Digital. Developing and executing a marketing strategy is my passion, but not my only passion as evidenced by my Instagram page. I love cooking and fueling my body for endurance sports through a plant-based diet. When I am not working on multi-media marketing, swimming, biking, running and cooking I can be found sharing laughs with my wife and step-son.
